OMG…. SINGPOST TRULY SUCKS.
I just received my notification letter for my singing exam.. Which is in just three days time on Tuesday?!!!
Stamp of posting was freaking 28 April. I only just received it yesterday. (22 May)
AND… I paid for registered mail but somehow the exam centre did NOT mail it via registered mail!!!
I totally understand how all the unhappy TVD customers waiting for their delayed mail feel.
28th April was Labour Day weekend week, and so many customers were emailing in to tell us that their parcel had not reached them.
If it took me almost a month to get my normal mail, I WOULD BE SO UPSET TOO 😡😡😡
I only have three days left to prepare for my singing exam.
For which I have to memorize five pieces of music. 🙀🙀🙀
As well as prepare a recital programme for the examiner.
This is the quote I need today. Hahahahaha
One of my five pieces for the recital exam is "Memory" from Cats which is the hardest to memorize cos there are three stanzas and every verse is slightly different 😰
And also hardest to sing cos the range goes down really low and then up really high *sweats*
But it's my favourite piece of all five and also the most "pop" piece, the rest are arias and classical pieces!
This weekend is gonna be serious mugging time to memorize all five pieces (2 English, 2 Italian, 1 German)
Thanks for the encouragement, peeps! 😍 I will work hard haha hope I don't get stage fright in the exam room 😐
Let's move on to other stuff! This week was really packed with quite a few events and meetings and stuff like that.
But not in a bad way!
Had a lunch meeting with Guerlain at Arteastiq ❤️ I don't have to tell you how much I love Guerlain. I swear by their Meteorites!
😍😍😍 Doesn't hurt that Guerlain products are the prettiest.
Look forward to a TVD X Guerlain collaboration coming really soon!!
Lychee tea from arteastiq is lovely 👍🏻
I had this: Porcini mushrooms with eggs and polenta.
The mushrooms and eggs were delish!
Relatively healthy too 👌🏻
Spot Guerlain's brand new Meteorites skincare: cannot wait to try it! And new summer limited edition Meteorites OMG the white case is 😍😍😍 Super Nice!
Another day that I met @evonnz together with Urban Decay: this brand I love for their eyeshadow and pigments in particular! 😍
New Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lipgloss!
For those of you that love pigmented lip glosses. 😍 What's great about these is that they are non-sticky, and they have a nice glossy finish! ❤️ And in sooooo many shades!
I tried the purple but I just can't carry off purple. Will stick to my usual pink shades 😣
Even prettier are the duo-chrome eyeshadow palettes: they are super pigmented and have such nice duo-chrome shimmers in them!
Gold and purple are my favourite ones.
I've tried only one UD blush (the one inside Naked On The Run palette) and I think they are pretty good. So these look very interesting!
Though I tend to stay on the safe side la. Usually, peach and pink blushes are my pick!
I'll tell you how these fare when I've tried the shades that I brought home.
This is me at Shu Uemura's event: When someone says NEW BROW PRODUCT! I'm pretty sure I'll be the first one to run in that direction.
I swear by a few Shu Uemura products.
Shu Uemura's Hard Formula is my number one favourite brow product!
As well as the Anti-Oxi Cleansing Oil 😍
Yesssss my Hard Formula brow pencil was just about to finish up, now I have a brand new one! 😁✨
And there's a few other pretty awesome new products coming to Shu soon: an automatic Brow liner (even comes with sharpener and a brow brush) and a new SkinFIT foundie!
Also, the cream eyeshadow looks ultra purdy 😍 It's very smooth and easy to apply! I love the champagne shade!
Last but not least.. I've been complaining about my horrible dark eye rings and eye bags and feeling so uninspired with my current concealers lol that I went out to Dior boutique to buy the Diorskin Star concealers!
Got convinced to buy two shades because the darker (salmon) shade will help to correct while the lighter shade will help to brighten.
Bought the collagen lip maximizer while I was at it and I was gifted a tiny travel makeup set AIYOOOOO SO CUTE 😍😍😍
So many products for one face lol.
Just got back home and washed up and slapped on the Sulwhasoo products again and feeling very good about them hahaha!
Sometimes you just need something new in your daily beauty routine to perk you up and inspire you to look good and feel good about yourself.
Fish commented that my skin looked very good today! Maybe it's cos of the Sulwhasoo 😁
I shall nua in bed and revise my music now. 🎶🎶🎶
@chikumama @lesoupir @huirulau @ankukueh @wuenyin 😭😭😭 Thank you for making my day!!
@wuenyin because you asked for it heh here's half the song (2 mins long) uploaded on YouTube! It's not its best yet but I'm still working on it 💪🏻
